This is the best video I have seen so far demonstrating new ball flight laws…and it pretty much kills the idea that my concept of release will create a hook. If you do an early gradual release on plane and your lower body is too slow…you will hit a pull.
The late release/hold the lag is the one that creates a hook because you get stuck underneath, the club comes from too far inside and the club either comes in open and the ball goes way right, or the pivot stalls, the club flips and it’s a snap hook.
I know I talk about feel and not manipulating the club, but this is more about dispelling misconceptions than actually implementing something.
The big ones are the push slice and pull hook. People try to fix both of these by swinging more inside/out and as you can see…THAT IS BAAAAAAAAAAAAD!!!!
